Gridde Pickings
Rhysling, the blind poet of the spaceways, stood in the viewport
of intergalectic liner XCV-67R. Tears welled in his steel-grey sight-
less eyes as the shining blue globe receeded in the distance, shrink-
ing in size until it was a mere point of light, and then, dripping off
into nothingness.
He knew he would never make his last landing on the orb that
gave him birth. He knew he would never again set foot on the cool,

awaited result of the new offen-
sive system installed by Black-
man this year. The Illini, plagued
by mistakes and fumbles as a re-
sult of the adjusting to this new
set-up, came up with a precision
performance against Purdue, run-
ning up 263 yards on the ground
to a mere 22 for the Boilermakers.
And the unlikely star of the
rushing game was controversial
fullback John Wilson, who earlier
this week had been charged by
Illinois police with use of a stolen
credit card. But Blackman stood
by his sophomore star, saying
that he though the Wilson affair
"was blown completely out of pro-
portion, but may have brought the
team together."
Wilson ran well all day for
Illinois, and scored two of their
three touchdowns. All in all,
Blackman was elated with his
club's performance, the first in-
dication that his rebuilding pro-
ject is taking effect after weeks

cluded. "They never quit work-
Purdue's loss dropped them to
3-1 in the Big Ten, and left Mich-
igan and Ohio State as the two
chief contenders for the crown.
OSU preserved their perfect re-
cord Saturday with a sound 31-6
thrashing of Wisconsin. Strange-
ly enough, it was not the Buck-
eye's methodical, plodding rush-
ing game but a combination of a
few long scoring strikes and a
series of Wisconsin turnovers
forced by the Ohio State defense
which resulted in the Buckeye
Morris Bradshaw, a sophomore
halfback, scored on two long 88-
yard plays, one on a kick-off re-
turn and the other on the long-
est OSU run from scrimmage ever.
Elmer Lippert also broke a long
one, going 48 yards from scrim-
mage for a touchdown.
On defense, the Buckeyes made
their own breaks by forcing four
Badger fumbles and intercepting
four passes.
Ohio State coach Woody Hayes
was in general pleased with his
team's performance, but showed
concern over the failure of his
team's running attack to produce
any long, sustained drives. "We
want to be able to move the ball
with a higher degree of consist-

ency," Hayes complained. "The ;
grind-it-out, wasn't there."
Actually, the Bucks gained 306
yards on the ground, but half of
that came on the two long scor-
ing bursts. The team was ham-
pered, however, by the absence of
star fullback John Bledsoe, who
has missed three games with a
deep thigh bruise. He should re-
turn in another week or two.
In other Big Ten action, both
Michigan State and Northwestern
[got back on the winning track
after losing the previous week.
The Spartans were involved in a
wild contest with Iowa, emerging

34-3 victors, while the Wildcats
set Indiana back to their sixthy
defeat in seven starts 21-14.
MSU set a Big Ten record in
their win-they fumbled fourteen
times. However, they were quick
enough to hop on eleven of their
miscues themselves, and so went
on to even up their conference re-
cord at 2-2. Little Spartan tail-
back Eric Allen also moved in on
a record, gaining 177 yards to in-
crease his career total to 1,934,
within reach of the school record
of 2,093 held by Lynn Chadnois.
While Allen was running up his
totals and scoring three touch-

downs, the Hawkeyes' Levi Mit-
chell took over his own team's
rushing record, picking up 107
yards to bring his season figure
to 1,775. Ed Podolak had held
the old mark of 1,710.
Northwestern survived an early
scare from the fired-up Hoosiers
to ride to their third victory in
five Big Ten starts. Quarterback
Maurie Dagneau led the way for
the Wildcats, throwing the twen-
tieth touchdown pass of his col-
lege career and also sneaking for
a score. The 20 touchdown
strikes ties a Northwestern re-
cord held by Tommy Meyers.

DETROIT (IP) - A heart at-
tack was responsible for the death
of Chuck Hughes, a 28-year-old
wide receiver for the Detroit
Lions, an autopsy revealed yes-
The autopsy, conducted by Dr.
Taisja Tworek of the Wayne
County Medical Examiner's staff,
indicated Hughes died from a
heart attack due to clogging of
his heart artery.
A spoKesman for he medical
examine'r's o f f i c e described

_ . }





Hughes' attack, which occurred
with just over a minute remaining
in Sunday's game between the
Lions and the Chicago Bears as:
"It's the same thing an 87-
year-old person could have died
The spokesman said tests of
tissue samples were taken to
determine whether Hughes con-
sumed any type of drugs before
the attack. He said results of the
tests are incomplete.
However, he said if the heart
attack was due to drugs, the
medical examiner's report would
not have been released so quick-
ly. He said the report's release in-
dicates the medical examiner is
certain Hughes' death didn't
stem from drugs.
The official cause of death
listed in the autopsy report was
"Arteriosclerotic coronary *artery
disease with acuse coronary
thrombotic occulsion."
A medical doctor explained to
The Associated Press the ex-
aminer's finding meant, in effect,
that Hughes had a hardening of
the main artery supplying the
heart, possibly caused by calcium
and fiberosis, and that a clot had
formed in this artery, shutting off
the flow of blood.
He suggested hardening of the
arteries was unusual in a person
of 28, although not in persons be-
yond the age of 50 or so.
He suggested the so-called
hardening of an artery was some-
thing like a water pipe in which
calcium deposits keep building up
until they virtually shut off the
flow, adding "then it takes only a
pebble to shut off the water."
"I'm horrified and shocked. He
was a great player and a great
person," commented Lions owner
William Clay Ford, his voice quiv-
ering with grief, in a filmed in-
terview Sunday shortly after the
tragic announcement of Hughes'

"Everyone was praying a mir-
acle would happen and that he
would pull through," he added.

BOSTON (/P) - The Boston
Celtics withstood Atlanta's hot
first period and charged back be-
hind veterans John Havlicek and
Tom Sanders yesterday for a 136-
116 National Basketball Associa-
tion victory over the Hawks.
The taller Hawks shocked Bos-
ton by surging to a 14-point lead
mid-way through the first per-
iod. The Celtics managed to nar-
row the gap to 41-31 after the
first 12 minutes.
Havlicek hit for three field
goals to make 48-41 before Sand-
ers came off the bench to ignite
a rally. Sanders sunk two set
shots to put his team ahead to
stay with a lay-up at 8:45.
